Margate is a popular seaside resort on the Isle of Thanet in Kent. Those in search of an escape to the coast in the traditional sense will be impressed with all the familiar trappings like the penny arcades, chippies, promenades, deckchairs, a pleasant beach and ice cream.
For a nostalgic day out why not visit Dreamland? Whether you’re a fan of playing in the arcades or wish to take a trip down memory lane, the coastal resorts of the Isle of Thanet – Margate, Ramsgate and Broadstairs – all fit the fun profile. Margate also has a good shopping centre packed with High Street favourites and independent shops. Visit the Margate museum to learn about the town’s history as a port, a holiday resort and its role on the front line in the Second World War.
Margate is close to other resorts such as Broadstairs and Ramsgate, and some nature reserves, and is a great base from which to explore the rest of Kent.
